Two tropical cyclones struck Vanuatu on March 1 and March 3, forcing 5,156 people to flee to evacuation centres. Around 80 per cent of the country’s population have been impacted, including 125,500 children, with schools sustaining damage and families in need of clean water, food, and shelter.
Please join us in praying:
- That God would provide food, water, and shelter for those impacted
- For protection over vulnerable people, such as children, pregnant and breastfeeding mums, elderly people, and people with disability
- That damaged schools would be able to reopen soon, and provide safe learning areas for children
Our Disaster Action Fund exists to be ready to respond in times of crisis and disaster. If you’d like to support our Disaster Response in countries like Vanuatu, you can donate today.

Some of the world’s most vulnerable communities live in the most disaster-prone areas. With limited capacity to mitigate sudden catastrophes, these families are more vulnerable to disasters. They also lack the resources to respond and rebuild effectively, creating a vicious cycle of poverty.
Your gift to the Disaster Action Fund means our local Christian Partners can respond urgently and effectively when disasters strike, both now and in the future
And your gift will keep on giving. Destruction caused by any disaster halts development in communities for years at a time. Your donation will help fund projects so that communities can rebuild and prepare for future disasters.
Estimates suggest that $1 invested in helping families prepare for disaster saves up to $6 in response and recovery after disaster hits.
Give to the Disaster Action Fund today and partner with us in saving lives before, during, and after disaster strikes.
